I have had uterus and cervix removed 11 years ago and my ovaries and fallopian tubes plus 1 pelvic cyst removed 7 years ago.I was put on hrt 8 years ago before my ovaries and fallopian tubes were removed. 6 mo after everything was out a new pelvic cyst grew on my cuff. Because of how many surgeries I have had down their the dr was worried about scar tissue and chose to remove fluid from the cyst instead of removing the cyst. At 5 years later they found a second cyst right next to the 1st one. So far they wont do anything for it now I changed hospitals to mayo clinic and hopefully they will remove the cysts. Its possible tho I could have a third one. I took a year off of the hrt to find out the cyst still grew without hormones. So they don't think the cyst is due to HRT. Any clue to why this happens? I have never had endometriosis. When they aspirated it before it showed lactobacillus,which comes from the intestines as far as I know; in the lab results.

I am sorry you are dealing with this. Endometriosis came to mind as I read your post. But since you said you never had it, I don't have a clue what could be causing the cysts. Is it possible you had endo and didn't know it / surgeon didn't diagnose it? It is my understanding that it isn't identifiable by some surgeons or not biopsied hence not diagnosed. What are your symptoms?  

I also had a hysterectomy and ovaries removed. :( It has caused problems but not cyst formation (that I know of anyway).

Please post back and let us know what you find out from your surgery at Mayo. I hope your surgery and recovery go well.
